Overview

About the property

Stay in our newly built home on Uvita Mountain with spectacular views of mountains, expansive sky and the Pacific Ocean. There are three bedrooms with queen size beds, two full baths and a half bath. All bedrooms are air conditioned though breezes flow through the house at all hours with comfortable temperatures around the clock. A terrace has poolside lounging and a grilling and dining area for the Costa Rican outdoor lifestyle. An indoor kitchen includes a family size refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, five burner gas cooktop and electric stove, and compost collection bin in the island. Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry room with washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. A forty inch Sankey Smart TV will entertain though cable is not provided. Bring an Apple TV or Roku box to stream Netflix and Showtime with little interruption. There are occasional power and wifi outages, but this is a rainforest after all!.

A four wheel drive vehicle is mandatory and a covered two car garage will offer protection from elements. There is also a drive-able route to the living level which is handy for unloading groceries. Otherwise, the living area of our home accessed via a flight of stairs.

Look out over the ocean to view the second largest sand bar in the world in the shape of a whale's tail. Be sure to gaze during low tide as it becomes fully submerged in high tide. In February and September, see whales and dolphins spawning in the warmer waters of the Southern Pacific Zone of Costa Rica. Surrounded by native, protected trees, wake up each morning to the sounds of howler monkeys, toucans, aracaris birds and small parrots. A short 10 minute drive down the mountain to Uvita provides banking, groceries and multiple restaurants. Approximately 10 more minutes, and you are in Bahia de Ballena, an expansive beach with walking access to the Whale's Tail. There is world class surfing in Playa Hermosa, approximately five miles away and Dominical, further in the north. Other nearby activities include hiking, zip lines, kayaking and atv trekking.

Our house is not suitable for children <10. No pets.

So beautiful, clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I came here with a group of college friends to celebrate my 32nd birthday and couldn't have been happier. The decor was minimalist and beautiful, especially the super sexy, photo shoot-ready bathrooms! Very comfortable beds with air conditioning and ceiling fans in each room, kitchen fully stocked with supplies (BOYB food with a grocery store right at the bottom of the mountain), strong and reliable WiFi, beautiful sunset views and not a lot of bugs which was surprising given our surrounds.

I will 100% be staying here every single time I go to Costa Rica!

Wonderfully inviting home with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time during my stay at Casa Del Cielo. The home had everything my girlfriend and I needed and more. While there was wifi, we decided to enjoy the sounds of nature that emanated from the rain forest and appreciate the breathtaking views from the infinity pool. The location, a few minutes from the town of Uvita can't be beat- you escape the sounds of trucks on the road while benefiting from the 5-10 degree cooler weather- a benefit when we did our morning yoga sessions and took our mid evening naps on the hammock. The road is very manageable if you have a vehicle that has 4x4 and you are a prudent driver. Loved my stay there and will definitely book again the future.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just stayed here for a week. The photos shown do not do it justice as the house is beautiful, views and the surroundings are stunning. We spent all our time outside by the pool and the kids were happy with the WiFi. The house had everything we needed. We saw so many toucans, hummingbirds, vultures and strangly enough for being in the rainforest we could sit outside every night watching the sunset and we’re never bothered by bugs. Vartan was incredibly helpful in answering all my questions before we arrived. Because of its location in the mountains it is at least 5 degrees cooler than down below...which was very welcome. It was about 15 minutes to the beach. Vartan had someone meet us to guide us up to the house for our first trip as the road is quite the experience. You must have a 4x4 vehicle to do the 10 minute drive up. Everyone warned us of the roads but we were still not prepared. The road is very rough and extremely steep. Once coming up we had to stop and wait while a bulldozer took a car out of the side of the road and coming down New Years Eve we only got part way down as the road was blocked by 3 cars that went off the road so we had to turn around and go back. There are a few restaurants to choose from in Uvita and 2 grocery stores that have everything you need. It is a small town but has a bakery at the bottom and a nice coffee shop, Sibu on the main street. We felt very relaxed from the moment we arrived and would definitely return!

Rain-forest paradise over-looking the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING Pacific Ocean and tropical rain forest views. Very comfortable new home on a tranquil and peaceful mountain side. I was in a state of relaxation from the moment we arrived. Spent most of my time enjoying the infinity pool, taking in the absolutely breathtaking views, and spotting toucans. Minutes from beaches, waterfalls and hiking trails.
